1 OVER UTILE
FRANCE AND MEXICO IN DISPUTE
ABOUT OWNERSHIP OF PA-
CIFIO OCEAN STRIP
M BE H BASE EBB COALING
ITALY OFFERS TO ARBITRATE IN
SQUABBLE AND SETTLE
KENT IN SIGHT
WASHINGTON, I). C, August 25.
Tho possibiity of n final decision as to
the ownership of Clipperton island, in
tho Pacific ocean, has aroused interest
hero in view of the expected completion
of the Panama canal by 1915.
The island is in dispute between Mex
ico and France, and the Italian govern
ment has indicated its willingness to act
as arbitrator in settling tile question.
Should the decision be favorable to
Fiance it would mean another station
in the lino of that government's posi
tion around the woild, and might be
come an important factor in military
and naval operations of the future. The
island would afford an intermediate
stopping place for coaling between our
Pacific coast ports and the Tahiti is
lands, which aro numbered "among the
French possessions in tlie cast.
Island Looks Like a Sail
Clipperton island lies 070 miles south
east of the harbor of Acapulco, Mexico.
Apparently it has no great natural ad
vantages for a coaling station or naval
base, but there aro no means of telling
to what extent such .facilities as there
are might be developed. Tho island is
a dangerous low lying strip about two
miles in diameter, with a prominent
rock sixty-two feet high on the south
east -edge, which at-,firs.t appears not un
like a sail. In good weather the land
is visible for twelve or fifteen miles.
It is a low coral belt of sandliko ap
pcamncc and annular in shape. A ic
deeming physical feature appears to
be an anchoiage on the northeast side
the island, whero thcro are from twenty
to forty fathoms of water with gootl
holding ground. However, tho place is
a dangerous one at best, and naviga
tors are advised to approach it with
France Has Double Claim
France claims, the island not only
ou the ground that it was discovered
(by a French captain two centuries ago,
but also because formal possession of it
was taken by a J'rcnch naval officer
sent out for the purpose in 1858. Mex
ico has exercised some authority over
the phosphate industry and at one time
Ousted an American eonipany from the
island, although it does not appear on
just what grounds .hpr contention of
ownership rest. "
